pen Ecanus•net :: Poems

So here we are, Fallen Angel's poetry page. I thought about arranging them by subject, then I thought about arranging them by date, and then it all started getting rather complicated, so I decided instead just to stick with a plain and simple A to Z by title. Want to see all the poems with titles beginning with C? Just click the 'C' and as if by magic the poems shall appear! Them squirrels that run this place ain't half speedy!

This is my assorted collection of poems spanning the years. These cover many times, places and feelings. Some have details of where I was when I wrote them, what I was doing, and what inspired them. With others, it's so long ago now I've no idea where they came from, only that I liked them enough to keep them around.

Some were written as 'me', some for other people, and some while I was trying to get "into character" for whatever I happened to be writing at the time – the weird ones, I'm claiming insanity grounds on. ;–)

Obsession

How can you take over my life so completely?
How do you do it?
What powers do you possess?
I remember a day before your arrival,
an ordinary day with no fixed plans,
with vague talk of your imminent arrival.
How did you take over my life so completely?
Our friends the same, our lives the same,
our styles, our families
Personalities meet.
You were nothing to me
But the time, shared memories
made you everything.
How can I love you so completely?
Defend your every move,
risk everything for you?
For there are no words to express it's depth
Words fail to describe the pain I feel
when you do not write,
when you do not phone,
when you aren't there,
But there in your other world
where I am not known.
And do you still think of me?
Do you remember the times we shared?
Memories which only we two hold.
Does it mean so much to you?

Over the Moon

Over the moon is where I want to be,
no more IIH so that I can be free.
I've been reading a book on quantum mechanics,
about the smallest of atoms and the biggest of planets.
It's said that the universe works on pure chance,
like a giant roulette wheel in the cosmoses expanse.
According to these laws there's many a parallel universe,
which means that somewhere out there, there's a me without this curse.
It's purely bad luck that I have intracranial hypertension,
and it probably wouldn't have happened in another dimension.
But for now in this universe I have to muddle on,
because for me this world is all I know and is the only one,
Yet I canít help wondering how life would be in a parallel universe,
if time and space by chance I could traverse.
Over the moon I where I want to be,
and one day in this world I will be free.
